Developing London’s Rail Infrastructure

Monday, 15 May 2017 at 6:00PM - 9:00PM
WSP House, 70 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1AF, UK
RTPI London

The development of major rail infrastructure in London also helps to unlock growth and development opportunities across the south east and beyond, to benefit future generations.  The lessons learnt from projects such as the Elizabeth Line can be carried across to the planning and delivery phases of other key infrastructure projects (rail or otherwise).   


  • 6:30pm - Introductions
  • 6:40pm - The need for large infrastructure development in London, Andrew Dorrian (TfL)
  • 6:55pm - Crossrail overview and the role of planning in delivery, Julie Davis (Crossrail)
  • 7:10pm - Wallasea Island, TBC
  • 7:25pm - Lessons for delivery of other rail projects under Hybrid Bills, Colin Turnbull (WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff)
  • 7:40pm - Conclusions and Q&A
  • 7:55pm - Refreshments and Networking

 This conference, hosted by the RTPI London, Crossrail, WSP and Mouchel, will explore the need for, and delivery of large scale infrastructure development in London. It will also provide an overview of the crucial role of planning in the delivery of large infrastructure projects and development of innovative and sustainable mitigation measures, such as re-use and placement of excavated material at Wallasea Island.  We will also explore lessons learned from other rail projects under hybrid bills in order that we may be better equipped to deliver major rail infrastructure provision over the forthcoming decades.
